If you have a crafty or design oriented business here in the Pacific Northwest please go vote for Seattle in Design*Sponge’s Biz Ladies Vote. Grace will bring a Biz Lady Nights meetup to the top five cities. Wouldn’t it be super cool to have one here? Voting closes Monday at 8 a.m. (Eastern time I believe) so vote now, or tomorrow, after you’ve had some coffee.

I got word that the old craft segments from the Martha Stewart television show have been put together for a new series on the DIY Network. The show will be called Martha Stewart Crafts and it will begin airing in November of 2007. Set your Tivo wishlist now.

I should have it done in time for the next movie: Harry Potter Dark Mark Illusion Scarf, thanks to Sara for the link!

Super cute DIY garden clogs using shoes from a dollar store. (Warning: music plays when you visit that site!)

I like this fabric basket that Craftlog made from The Crafter’s Companion. (Note to self: buy that book.)

These are clever – Beanie Baggie, a weighted drawstring bag made to hold your yarn so it won’t roll away while you’re knitting.

    So have you ever been able to wear flip-flops? I remember a few years back, several times you bemoaned the fact that you couldn’t stand the feeling of the thing between your toes, so you never wore them. Those flip-flop socks would probably drive you nuts…. !

    Ico – Nope, I’m still cannot wear flip flops, but I thought it was a cute pattern for those who do.

    Kind of OT, but thanks so much for posting the link to the window film with the silouette of tree branches a while back!

    I ordered some as soon as I saw it as I’ve been looking for some neat window film to cover a window next to my front door. It came yesterday and we put it up today. I love it! I posted pictures of it on my flickr.

    ex.libris – It’s looks amazing! I think I’m going to use this on our back door where I have regular frosted film now. Thanks so much for showing it to us.

    You’re welcome. I’ve been uncomfortable about random people looking in that window for awhile, so I’m glad I finally found something I love to cover it!

    did anyone else notice that the “Yard of Yarn” sold on that beanie bag site are actually ikea’s minifangst kids storage thingies?

    The DIY shrinky-dinks worked great!!!! The deli at QFC was very happy to give us some #6 lids (I am kinda freaked out by baking that plastic in my oven, but the kids are having a blast)
